Another reason for aluminum tanks

I just got back from a trip across the state and I'm very glad that I had aluminum tanks. Going down the freeway at 70 mph I had my 30 Ibs. LP tanks come loose. One tank fell off the craddle and tried to go under the camper. The hose held the tank from going all the way under. But before I could stop, a hole whore through. The tank was full, and I'm sure that if it were a steal tank I would be looking for and new camper and suburban.

The funny thing is, I just fixed the shaft that holds the tanks before I left, so I know the tanks were tight when I left, Only thing I can figure is that one tank must not have been flat when I tightened it down. Now I have to deside weather to by two tanks so they match, or do you think the new and old will be close?

Order one...if it doesn't match your existing tank close enough, order a second one...then use the third one as a spare.
